EA ‘Exploring’ Command & Conquer Remasters | Gaming News
Electronic Arts wants to hear feedback from fans.
“As most of you may know, we recently announced Command & Conquer: Rivals, a mobile game set in the Command & Conquer universe,” Electronic Arts producer Jim Vessella posted on Reddit yesterday. “Following the reveal of Rivals, we heard you loud and clear: the Command & Conquer community also wants to see the franchise return to PC. And as a fan of C&C for over 20 years, I couldn’t agree more.
“With that in mind we’ve been exploring some exciting ideas regarding remastering the classic PC games, and already have the ball rolling on our first effort to celebrate the upcoming 25th Year Anniversary.”
Vessella, who helped produce Command & Conquer 3 and Red Alert 3 and was the lead producer on Kane’s Wrath, wrote that interacting with fans was one of his favorite parts of his job. To that end, the producer added that he was every bit as passionate about Command & Conquer as its fans are and wants to hear their thoughts.
“We are eager to hear your feedback to help influence our current thoughts for PC and what comes next,” he wrote. “Over the next few weeks we’ll be talking to fans in a variety of ways. In the meantime, please share your thoughts here on the subreddit.”
Responding to a fan post, Vessella added that there will not be any microtransactions in any Command & Conquer remaster. Elsewhere in the thread, Vessella told another fan that Electronic Arts already had “the ball rolling” on things and would be releasing more details “in the near future.”
Electronic Arts announced Command & Conquer: Rivals at E3 in June. It was the first bit of Command & Conquer news since 2012, when Electronic Arts released the free-to-play browser game Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances.
